This Is Not Your Daddy’s Gun: Crickett Precision Rifle

    Keystone Sporting Arms LLC posted this photo on their Facebook page. I called them up to find out if this was real or not. According to Salesman Nathan, the CPR is based off their bull barrel Cricketts. They noticed the trend in the firearms industry is to make rifles with threaded barrels for suppressors. But they did not stop there. As you can see in the photo above, the chassis is modeled after the Accuracy International’s chassis. The CPR will also come with the EZ Loader. It is a feed ramp to help aid feeding of rounds thrown into the ejection port.

    For those of you not familiar with the Crickett, it is a small single shot rifle in .22lr. It has a 16″ barrel with a tiny stock made for young beginner shooters to have the proper length of pull. The Crickett allows young shooters to learn and practice basic marksmanship skills. Now with the CPR coming soon, they have have a gun that looks as cool as their daddy’s and mommy’s.

    The CPR rifle alone will retail for $309.99. They are planning on offering a tricked out package like the one you see in the photo above. So it will have the sun shade, bi pod, and a muzzle device. Now word on the price of the tricked out CPR.

    These will be coming out next month, January 2017 unfortunately they will not be at SHOT Show according to Nathan.

    They will be making the rounds of distributor shows and will be at the Great American Outdoor show next February.

     

    Edit: Thanks to Nathan, he sent this comparison picture. It is the CPR next to the Ruger Precision Rifle.
